I have started out with using avifile (vfw.h) in my program. but now i need to figure out how to load divx movies. Anyone thats got a good piece of advice? There must be some sourcecode that does this avalible somewhere, but does anyone know where I can get my hands on this sourcecode? I have searched the net for days without finding anything that deals with this. =(. If anyone got any resources or knowledge regarding avifile and divx loading, speak out! Thanks in advance! //Faderfah

DirectShow is the component of DirectX that renders streams of AV data.

First you need to install the proper decoder for your PC (mpeg1 and a pile of legacy AVI type codec come with Windows), and then DirectShow has some simple methods to call that will build the filter graph needed to play the movie. Example code is included with the Dx8 SDK.
